Presentation: Best Practices on IoT/Time Series Data Modeling



2:55pm - 3:45pm

Day of week:



Over 90% of the world's data has been generated in the past two years, and the rate at which data is being generated is increasing each day. Gartner, Cisco, Intel, and IDC all estimate that the number of internet connected devices will be in the 10s to 100s of billions by 2020. No matter whose estimate ends up being right, we are living in a unique time where data is evolving into a powerful commodity.

We will explore:

  • The market dynamics driving these changes in data, specifically focusing on Time Series data which is quickly becoming the largest growing data type in the IoT universe.
  • Key considerations in how you approach your solution as Time Series data requires high-performance reads and writes even with a huge number of data sources. Both speed and scale are integral to success, which makes for a unique challenge for your database.
  • Best practices and real IoT practical examples on how you can structure your data for success.
